Updated this mod as cooler sickness may be broken. Work with current July 20th patch and is unlikely to break.


This mod removes the ugly skin overlays that sims get when they receive a sickness buff (i.e. stuffed up, dizzy, delirious, etc), which ruin pictures.

Furthermore this mod also changes the sickness buffs in 2 ways.
First it increase the mild sickness buffs duration to 6 hours and the severe sickness buffs to 12 hours so taking medication or drinking tea/orange juice is actually more useful.
2nd it increases the buff strength so mild sickness has a 2 strength and severe sickness has a 3 buff strength


overwritten resources.
all buff_SicknessSystem_Symptom (for example)
buff_SicknessSystem_Symptom_CoughSneeze_severe


Additional Credits:
Kijiko for the skin tone (glow edition skin tone and high texture body used).

Nice Mod! I've been waiting for something like this! I think it should have version that goes from shorter to longer! I feel that longer would be even more realistic! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

The overlays didn't bother me that much, but thank you for the longer sickness buff.
